I am a Bird

feather, illusion, light, wing, woman

I am a bird inside your cage

And you don’t want to hear my song

Though you appear to be watching

For the things that could go wrong

With the plans that you’ve made

You’re so transfixed by my wings

That you’ve clipped so I won’t try

To escape the awful things

That you say and want to do

To make me feel I have no choice

But to sit in front of you

So all alone without my voice

I am a bird inside this cage

And I have lost my winsome song

That I sang so long ago

For the one who is now gone

He is a shadow upon my wall

A dark foreboding misery

Where he has wandered

I cannot tell you

I’ll never solve the mystery
